Dell’s slimmest laptop ever is shipping this December, and it would seem they know they’ve got something pretty special. The price tag on this luxury laptop starts at $1,799. But, like a gourmet burger chef that disallows ketchup in his restaurant, there’s not a lot of room to change up the Adamo. 

Another show of bravado on Dell’s part is the December 22nd ship date. That’s cutting it a little close. Apparently they think they’ve got something special enough that people are going to jump for overnight shipping. 

And, frankly, they might. The Adamo is a laptop design that’s never been brought to the mass market before – ever. It’s also not only the slimmest Dell of all time, but the slimmest laptop in the Universe.

However, its performance isn’t exactly anemic. Inside its svelte frame are the features listed below. [Buy it
